The R2-KT Artists Month rolls on into July after a successful June, giving artists the chance to show off their work to a wider audience during these difficult times. Every day through out June, R2-KT focused on a talented artist of the galaxy, and now that continues into July with today’s artist, Brady Miller.
What drew you to Star Wars?
“In 1977 my father took me to a movie called “Star Wars”. That would spark my passion for art and design. From the very opening sequence I was hooked. As soon as I got back home from the movies, I immediately began to draw Star Wars related subject matter and still do to this very day. Some of my main influences have been Ralph McQuarrie, Drew Struzan, Dave Dorman, and Bob Ross to name a few.”
“In 2004 I joined the 501st Legion. After becoming fast friends with a number of Legion members, many had seen my art and asked if I would do a design for the Ohio Garrison. I agreed and from there I have designed logos, various PR media and art for many of the groups within the 501st over the years. The opportunity given to me by the Ohio Garrison allowed me advanced my knowledge and skill level in the digital art realm and I will always be eternally grateful for those who believed in and encouraged me to get my art “out there”. Almost all of my Star Wars art (other than fan art) has been for 501st Legion’s Garrisons, detachments, and the like.”
“Currently, I am the manager of the Weights & Research department for a major motor carrier, and I do freelance illustratration/graphic design as a second income/hobby. I recently have begun to paint landscapes in oils after about a 22 year hiatus (little kids and oil paints laying around doesn’t make for a happy wife). Very soon I will be opening commission work and an online store where my oils on canvas can be purchased.“
